|Floyd Mayweather Jr v Manny Pacquiao||Odds|
Considering the general concept with boxing is two people knocking seven bells out of each other in a ring the world boxing scene is rather complicated and convaluted, so it's best to do your homework before placing any bets. Each weight division will have different belts to win via the different boxing federations. David Haye has won the world heavyweight belt in the past but a host of Eastern Europeans, including the Klitschkos, are beginning to dominate and there are two other belts currently held in the World Heavyweight Boxing division.
The most popular fights to bet on will be the one that feature British boxers. The aforementioned David Haye has plenty of support. Another British fighter who is getting plenty of interest is Tyson Fury, as well as Carl Froch and George Groves.
Ricky 'The Hitman' Hatton had been the biggest star in British Boxing for a number of years as he managed to grab the attention of the British fans through thick and thin over a number of years. The Manchester fighter is already a legend in his own right but Ricky Hatton has now retired and it would take a huge bout to tempt him back.

The most popular bet in boxing terms is simply to back the boxer you think will win the fight. The odds are laid out exactly as they would where there is a possibility of three outcomes, with either boxer winning or an unlikely draw. You will find that the odds can be quite short where the favourite is concerned with the majority of fights as they are rarely equal contests.
Have a bet on how many rounds you think there will be in the fight. The bookmaker will set up a line as to how many they think there will be and will offer you odds on whether there will be over or under those amount of rounds. There are usually 12 rounds in professional bouts but make sure you know how many rounds there will be before placing your bet.
Method of Victory Odds
You can bet on the way you think the fight will be won and bookmakers will put up odds on whether the fight will be won by knockout or on points, or even by technical knockout. It's a fun bet to have if you want better value odds on a fight. Check the records of the boxers before placing your bet, as some boxers may have weaker chins than the other.
